Second Ultrasound

This week we went in for a second ultrasound. I was about 24 and a half weeks (reached the point of viability, yey!). Everything looked good, even though we had a grossly inept ultrasound tech. She wouldn't record the pictures on the cd or dvd we were *told* to bring, took forever to get the measurements that the last tech did in a few minutes, and printed us a measly two pictures that are horribly out of focus. Oh well, at least we only have to wait 15 more weeks before we get to see him in person!

The reason we were there was to get a better view of the spine, and everything looks perfect in that department. According to the tech's measurements this time (of which I am not extremely confident) we are measuring about four days ahead of schedule. The baby weighed in at 1 pound 11 ounces and is a bit over a foot long! He's getting so big in there! He was head down, with his hands clasped together resting on his cheek, and his legs crossed Indian-style (and yet he still managed to kick a bunch!). Something fun to see was - he has shapely calves, he looks like a little runner! And a cute little button nose, it's so tiny and well-shaped. All in all, he's doing very well and is developing just as he should. We can't wait to see him face-to-face. :)

I'll post the two new sonogram once we get them scanned, but they really just look like blurs of white and grey, nothing exciting!
